Bike To Work Benefits – The Link Between Health And Productivity

Few people are ever at their most productive when they are unwell, tired, or under any type of stress. This is just as true for your employees. However, there are several bike to work benefits that could turn things around for your team.

There are many ways to invest in your employees’ wellbeing, from gym club memberships to health insurance. However, a host of recent studies have shown the best thing you can do for both your employees and your productivity levels is invest in a bike to work scheme. On average it has been shown that cyclists live two years longer, and take fewer sick days than non-cyclists; in fact they take 15% fewer, requiring less cover. This is time that they are spending active and working for you. Additionally, exercise before work is believed to increase productivity by 15%. Exercise can take many forms, but as your employees have busy lives, an opportunity to combine travel and exercise can only offer positive benefits. It’s not just productivity benefits either, team members who are physically fit have been shown to make up to 27% fewer mistakes in their work input than those deemed to have an unfit lifestyle. This is just as much linked to mental health, as exercise, especially outdoor workouts, such as those you might do on holiday, have been shown to have a positive effect on people’s mental health. Combined with the fact that if you participate in a salary sacrifice scheme, your team can save money on buying a bike, it makes for a happier, healthier, and more productive work environment.
